Manager: Mir not released, but taking time off
Frank Mir has been fighting in the UFC for thirteen years and has fought in five world title fights. Mir is currently on a three-fight losing streak, which led fans to speculate he might be released from the organization, but that doesn't seem to be the case:
On Wednesday, however, Mir's manager Malki Kawa confirmed to FOX Sports that the longtime UFC heavyweight is still in the UFC's employ.
“He's just taking time off,” Kawa said. “He's taking a little bit of time and we'll figure out what his next fight is going to be, and what he's going to do next. Right now we haven't come to a conclusion on that time frame yet.”
“We'll know something very soon, but there's nothing really happening quite yet,” Kawa said. “But yeah, he's still on the roster.”
